Abstract: In Belgium one distinguishes two types of bachelor degrees: the professional and the academic bachelor. A professional bachelor degree focuses on professional training (such as nursing and teaching) and does not grant automatic access to a master’s program. The goal of an academic bachelor degree on the other hand is to get all the necessary knowledge and skills to start a master’s program. However professional bachelors are not excluded from a master programme, they can start a master programme after succeeding a bridging programme.
In this paper we focus on possible differences in values and skills between these two types of master students: the ones who enter the master programme by means of an academic bachelor degree (regular students) and those who got admittance after finishing a bridging programme (bridging students). In practice, the professors experience no differences. Our research reveals a significant difference between the two populations in some aspects.
